We are going to be flat out for the rest of the season following a typically slow start to the year once all the horses had their mid winter flu jabs at the start of January

We are ready to press on now and are likely to have runners every day this week before a hectic weekend with multiple entries at Musselburgh on both days in addition to Sandown on Saturday and Taunton on Sunday.

Horses who could make the trip to Scotland in search of better ground include Southfield Stone in the novice Chase, Scaramanga or Miranda in the Scottish Champion Hurdle and Wonderful Charm who is more likely to start in the four mile Chase than the hunter Chase in which we could enter Southfield Vic.

Those heading to Sandown should include Grand Sancy in for the Scilly Isles Chase, Dan McGrue who goes for the valuable handicap hurdle and Dolos who runs in the race he won twelve months ago.

Then on Sunday we will be sending a strong group of horses to Taunton. Things are certainly going to be very busy for Team Ditcheat for the next three months.

For all the latest news on my weekend runners please be sure to turn to my Betfair column which goes live at 5pm on Friday.
